  3. WOW!!! I made no bake cookies that turned out right!! This has rarely happened in the past, LOL. Actually, I made a batch from a recipe I had, and they wouldn't set, as usual.

  7. This must be one of the easiest cookies to make, and it has been a family favorite in both my husband and my families for years and years. A lot of people complain that the cookies don't always set up well, but I found if you follow the advice in this recipe about bringing it - Read more ...
  8. I made a double batch with my toddler - ended up with about 95 cookies. I ended up with cocoa and oats on my floor but it was worth it! The cookies are perfect and we both had fun making them.
